Portraits After 5

Portraits After 5

Portraits After 5 was an evening event organized by the Smithsonian Resident Associate Program at the National Portrait Gallery on November 4, 2011. The event showcased the exhibition Portraiture Now: Asian American Portraits of Encounter and allowed participants to converse with exhibit curators and Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program staff. Two hundred tickets were sold and attendees enjoyed food and music in the Kogod Courtyard and had their portraits drawn by the Corcoran College of Art + Design students, which were added to the works from the collections being projected on the walls of the courtyard.
